The First Lady who noted the sterling performances of 24-year-old Owowoh said the officer is a good example of the great feats Nigerian youth can achieve.

Busola Kukoyi, Senior Special Assistant to the First Lady on Media, Monday, May 6, 2024, stated Senator Oluremi Tinubu said: “Your determination and resilience are quite remarkable and you are an inspiration to the youth of this country.

“As a woman, the first who has made a mark in a male-dominated field, I salute you.”

She noted: “You have the entire world ahead of you. This is just the beginning. “You are now a reference point for all Nigerian Youth. If you remain focused and positive, you will reach your goal in life.”

The statement noted the First Lady, in a practical demonstration of celebrating the officer requested all present, including the Wife of the Vice President, Wife of the Speaker, Wives of Ministers, Wives of Service Chiefs and Members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, to give a standing ovation to 2nd Lt Owowoh.

In her remarks, the wife of the chief of Defence Staff Mrs Oghogho Musa pointed out that the training and graduation of Owowoh is a testament of improved female inclusion in the country.
